Q: Does ArcWear perform all testing for ASTM F887?
A: ArcWear only performs the arc flash testing portion of the tests. After the arc flash testing is complete, a drop test must be performed. ArcWear can arrange for this testing through an ISO 17025 accredited testing lab, or we will return the tested harnesses to the manufacturer to make arrangements for the drop test.
